To survive through our current ‘bare-bones operations’ for the rest this year 2020 and into 2021, The Dole needs to raise over $500,000 to maintain the historic building and pay the mortgage while retaining a skeleton staff. We have raised $154,000 as of 7/10/20 and we need the community’s help.
It’s that simple. If we don’t raise the money, over 40 years of Lakeside Festival traditions will cease to exist and what the community has built will no longer be. The Dole Mansion needs you NOW more than ever!
It is unthinkable to see the end of The Dole, the annual Lakeside Festival, no community art shows such as those for District 155 or District 47 schools, no live music concerts outdoors or in ‘the Listening Room’, no 4th Fridays Art Event, no culinary kitchen gatherings and the end of continuing education from The Dole.
Raised: 1 million in 42 days
Short Term Plan: No condos
Future Goal: Unknown
Short Term Plan: Staying alive now to continue serving our community post COVID-19.
